Beginning of the End

As part of his 2008 presidential campaign, Obama promised to end military operations in Iraq and bring troops home and made his first visit as commander-in-chief in April 2009. In August 2010, Obama announced the end of combat there and said 100,000 troops had been removed from the country and that hundreds of military bases had either been closed or transferred to the Iraqi military.
